Light snow falls in central London on Easter Monday

Monday’s temperatures are expected to be up to 11C lower than during the sunshine of the Easter weekend as cold northern winds move over the country.
Parts of the UK are expected to see the mercury fall to as low as minus 7C (19.4F) overnight as forecasters warn the country faces a “bitterly cold” day, with people waking up to snow in parts of Scotland and northern England.
It comes after the Met Office said highs of 17.9C (64.2F) were recorded in Pershore, Worcestershire, on Easter Sunday.
The town is expected to see temperatures of 7C (44.6F) on Monday, an 11C fall.
Met Office forecaster Simon Partridge said: “There’ll be a drop of 11 degrees between one day and the next, so you will definitely notice it!”
Mr Partridge explained that a change of wind direction would bring a change in the atmosphere, leading to chilly weather.
He said: “The air we had on Sunday came in from the south so it’s pretty mild having come off the continent.
“Overnight we’ll see a cold front moving southward across the country, it’s already across northern Scotland, and it’ll push its way southward overnight.
“That will introduce much, much colder air across the whole country.”

  • London ! After 25 years of living there - right next to where you filmed. I'm OUT ! SO HAPPY to be out of London. It's become a prison ! Where you get screwed - payments - for everything. An anti white mayor and a complete melt down in housing - unless you're a property developer.. The mayor likes entertaining them, oh yeah.. Stuff everyone else.. Parking, driving, rent, council tax, polluted Tubes, hassle on buses and the money grabbers - councils.. Disgusting that people actually go to work and implement council rules.. Don't blame politicians. It's people who in-chain other people... I LOVE now living in the countryside...
